    Hey guys ( and gals) ,
    I was able to visit Las Vegas last week and took some time to visit the Shelby American Museum and Production Facility, thought that I would post the pics here for you all to enjoy.

    If you are in the Vegas area, I highly encourage the visit, it is just off the strip and easily reachable by bus ( the Deuce Strip Transport - South ) with a short walk from the bus stop location to the facility. If you can, take the tour they offer, its about an hour but it's entertaining and really gives you some different viewpoints into Carroll and the Ford rivalry with Ferrari, plus some good trivia and insight around the whole Le Mans legend that spawned the movie. Also every single employee that I encountered, from the tour guides to the engineers and mechanics to the gift shop operators are super passionate about what they do, their love of the Shelby brand and what it means, automotive performance in general, and the man himself.

    Enjoy!
    Price of admission: 100% FREE

    Was there a few years ago. Was pleasantly surprised to discover this gem of a place. Also I was reminded while visiting that the 1st car I owned was a Shelby, a 1985 Dodge Charger Shelby Turbo!

    I was there 2 years ago. Quite a few of the museum cars have changed. At that time almost everything was for sale.

    Was there during SEMA last NOV. Is Mike Dempsey still doing the tour?

    He's from Alabama and was pretty entertaining,. This was when Ford Versus Ferrari was coming out so the GT 40 is #1 and the Daytona were on display. 59484602293__8482E39A-F8B3-40BC-BE47-76207FA5EABF.jpeg IMG_0742.jpeg IMG_0738.jpeg
